The Print Preview looks fine.Printing to file a .ps and then using gv to look at that output is wrong also?Wel anyway you will be able to print via gv.
I just found ~/.lpoptions in my home directory, and in it was a section that said "orientation-requested=4"; I changed this to 1, and now I'm getting portrait printouts instead of landscape. Woot! (Of course, I haven't tried printing from OO.o, etc, so I may have hosed up something else.)
I don't know how this file was generated, or what 1 or 4 means, or where this file got the idea I wanted this setting to be 4, but I believe I'm getting closer to solving my issue.
The printout seems a little low on the page, but I think I'll worry about that another day.
